Boston area Kite Schools and Gear Shops

Postby John2D » Sat Jun 02, 2018 4:18 pm

Hello All, I just moved to Boston and am looking to find a school to take a lesson to get local knowledge for some of the spots here. I also need to buy gear as I am a newer kiter and have none. I have about 20 sessions in and kite upwind without issues. But my only experience is in shallow/warm water (TCI and Isla Blanca). I'd like to get more comfortable with the conditions here and buy some gear before I start going out on my own. Any recommendations for schools/kite gear shops in the area or on the Cape? Also, I wouldn't mind meeting others who kite here - I guess I will do that eventually on the beach.....

Thanks....

You can also try Air Support, a kite school in West Dennis on Cape Cod. My wife took lessons with them several times. They are good. They can help you with knowledge of the different kite spots. They sell equipment, too.
